retro studios is making another game that i want to be wii u metroid prime but they JUST started development UUGGGGHHHHH

in the past two weeks i have made absolutely no #money because of what i had to spend on gas and #food and whatever, thank god for minimum wage

super metroid didn’t have mode 7 so it couldn’t scale or rotate any of its art assets

even if it did mode 7 only works with backgrounds you damn losers

you know what i fucking hate is sprite-based video games that are emulating a very particular style of older 8- or 16-bit games but then the sprites very clearly do a ton of crap that that original system never wold have been capable of doing. like i just watched a video of a metroid 2 remake that’s updating the graphics to super metroid/zero mission/fusion style and it looked fantastic until samus shot an enemy and it briefly rotated. as small as that sounds it completely killed it for me. it looked like a shitty sprite cartoon made in flash that you’d see on newgrounds in 2007. then there were glowing effects and screen wipes that were very clearly not snes-pixel-sized

Most men never think about patriarchy—what it means, how it is created and sustained. Many men in our nation would not be able to spell the word or pronounce it correctly. The word “patriarchy” just is not a part of their normal everyday thought or speech. Men who have heard and know the word usually associate it with women’s liberation, with feminism, and therefore dismiss it as irrelevant to their own experiences. I have been standing at podiums talking about patriarchy for more than thirty years. It is a word I use daily, and men who hear me use it often ask me what I mean by it.

Nothing discounts the old antifeminist projection of men as all-powerful more than their basic ignorance of a major facet of the political system that shapes and informs male identity and sense of self from birth until death.

imagine all of buffy’s most recognizable dialogue being spoken by bruce campbell. it occurred to me writing this post that i can’t think of a single iconic thing she’s ever said
